In this video, Attorney Jacob J Sapochnick, Esq. will explain the reasons why an applicant should consider hiring an attorney.

You are not required to have a lawyer when applying for an immigrant visa or green card in the United States or overseas. If you have a straightforward case, are clearly eligible for the benefit you seek, and have no record of crimes or negative run-ins with immigration authorities, you can potentially proceed all the way to a visa or green card without a lawyer. In fact, if you are overseas, lawyers cannot attend consular interviews with you, though they are allowed to prepare the paperwork and have follow-up communications with the consulates.

However, there are numerous types of situation when you’ll need a lawyer’s help — or will save yourself a lot of time and aggravation by getting it. Immigration law is notoriously, insanely complicated, and it’s run by a bureaucracy that receives less oversight and public scrutiny than you might expect.

Immigration law seems deceptively easy. However, it is a minefield full of traps for the unwary, and behind every case must emanate a well thought-through strategy. While it is true that almost anyone can fill out forms, immigration law is about so much more than that.

A qualified immigration lawyer will advise you on a host of issues and restrictions on work and travel that foreign nationals may face. Such rules may apply differently to those seeking non-immigrant versus immigrant status and oftentimes even apply to Permanent Residents, also known as “Green Card.”
